The power of standing still
is like the power of standing alone. Not everyone can do it.
Not everyone can handle it.
It's like having the pain of not talking to someone for days.
It dreads upon us,
and forces us back.
It's like giving up something that matters greatly,
then later having that regret. Judging the matter of standing alone is like judging a hero.
It takes strength and courage to be a hero,
and it takes power to stand alone. Standing alone now shows power.
I hear many people say that they don't want to grow up being alone, or die alone.
The fear of being alone is now questionable...
if we, as humans, are afraid of being alone...
are we afraid to be POWERFUL?
